Oh believe me, I agree with that. A fake trying to replace the real thing never quite satisfies. It doesn't pass muster. I listen to genres that are plagued with fake drums. Takes me out of it almost every time. My suspension of disbelief will only take me so far. Unless the bass guitar is picking up the slack or you have something really unique going on, I can't even listen. It's almost like a simulation of actual good music. Just a simulation... ...like "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if someone was playing this? Eh? EHHHH?!" Well... ...yeah, it'd be pretty badass, actually.Yes, you could. ....and many folks do.
Sit down at a REAL Hammond, Rhodes, Hohner D6, or even a Jupiter eight.
Emulation is just that. Fakery.
BTW, I was in a popular Floyd tribute band. The Hammond was digital.....
Sometimes, it works (i'm not slamming it).
Real is always better.
Agreed RZ! I have a rackfull of fakeness, several Octapads, and various and sundry digi noisemakers. I know fake.Oh believe me, I agree with that.

I think there is a valid use for fake instruments, though... ...perhaps the ONLY valid use of them is to do things with them that you can't accomplish with the real thing. That's what I listen for in electronic music. The best electronic music producers manage to capture sounds and textures that their traditional counterparts can't normally achieve or make use of... ...they take the sounds of real instruments and combine/modulate them to create something that's uniquely its own thing, rather than trying to pass-off a crude impersonation of a real performance as the real thing.
Using a fake in place of the real thing is a waste of its potential. If you're gonna use fake instruments, you have to be creative with it. There are no substitutes for taste, skill, and good ideas. A worthy fake allows you to do things that's can't normally be done. And if you can't or don't make it do something that the real thing can't, then real deal will always be superior to whatever you're trying to do. There's nothing of value distinguishing it from the real thing.
Not too many people think or care to do that, though. They're just filling in empty spaces. I don't think fake instruments are inherently worse. It's just that most people abuse them by using them in place of actual talent, skill, and creativity. They think because they have a workaround, that they can dupe people into thinking they've done more than they have. And it never works. Even if you can't hear the difference, you can feel the inauthenticity. The finished product sounds implacably dry and bland.
Haha, you said it all right there!It still sounds fake. I don't care how much verb, EQ, and whatever you try. It still sounds fake. So what the fuck, Don't hide the fakeness.
It all depends on context.
THAT ain't bad at all. Yuuup, there is some serious digital manipulation goin' on on....Haha, you said it all right there!
I'm legit thinking about playing this and stuff like it at work instead of the usual top 40 pop and classic rock that plays nonstop. I'm so over that stuff. You ever hear something so many times that it starts to sound "smelly" to you? Maybe like a t-shirt that you've worn for a month straight? Like you just gotta rip it off?
Would anybody shop to this? My goal here is to get some chill, upbeat, inoffensive, mostly instrumental music that is not your stock Muzak material. Something that people young and old can quietly tolerate...
Yes I realized that I had mistakenly written the plural tense right after I hit (Post Reply).I wasn't going to toss in an edit notice for such a small error...Cheers!Hey there snake, that's "Piper at the Gates of Dawn"
Uuuh, I would go off on an educational rant of Pink Floyd, nightmares, and such, but I'm tired, it's late.
Yep Pipes.YUUUUP, Great "pipes".
Badass Hammond player.
Yeah brutha, Great pipes!Yep Pipes.
Direct C&P from (Urban Dictionary) below.
A set of vocal chords; usually used to describe one's singing abilities.
"Mariah Carey's voice is awesome! She has an amazing set of pipes."
"Have you heard the new girl in our choir? She has great pipes."
Glad you don't hate it! He's one of the few in that movement thingy that actually puts some care and effort into what he does. And it does show.THAT ain't bad at all. Yuuup, there is some serious digital manipulation goin' on on....
I can listen to it and not puke.
